The most recent issue of Audubon has an article by Mark Jannot on the value of planting natives, even if it's just containers on your patio or deck, for helping birds survive in the urban environment. Native birds have a clear preference for native plants. Audubon has a website to guide you in plant selection: audubon.org/plantsforbirds They apparently lumped eastern and western Washington, so ignore the sagebrush and rabbitbush, but otherwise good suggestions for your yard.
Buy Natives at the Central Puget Sound Chapter/WNPS sale
The Central Puget Sound chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society is holding its annual native plant sale at Mercerdale Park on Mercer Island on Saturday, April 29th. Go to wnps.org to learn more. It's a fabulous sale!
